A Public Health advocate in the making...
LILI WARREN |'12| PUBLIC HEALTH
New York, USA

Lili Warren grew up in Washington, D.C. in a French-American family. Yes, she was (and still is!) one of those proud “Rochambeau Forevers”. After graduating from the Lycée, Lili attended McGill University in Montreal, where she studied Psychology and Neuroscience. She then worked in a Molecular Neuroscience laboratory, exploring the roles of brain receptors. But soon she realized that while she was passionate about hard sciences, her calling was elsewhere – away from slicing tadpole brains. Her training in basic and social sciences, as well as her experience as a multicultural and trilingual global citizen, led her to pursue a Master’s of Public Health (MPH) at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health in New York City. Here she strives to translate science into policy and make an impact at a population-wide scale.

Particularly interested in Human Rights issues and Health Disparities, Lili had the incredible opportunity over the Summer to intern at UN-FPA. + Learn more about Lili's work towards helping improve lives of underserved populations.
“Cette communautĂ© internationale, respectueuse et diverse, continue de m’accompagner au fil de mes Ă©tudes et ces liens forts entre voyageurs , explorateurs de cultures et de langues, chercheurs interdisciplinaires, me donnent espoir en un monde futur gĂ©nĂ©reux et inclusif . Ă€ mes amis de Rochambeau, Ă  mes professeurs, je dis merci .   ”

MERCI Mme ERMLER
In June, we celebrated an important accomplishment ! Barbara Ermler, our English AND Science teacher, retired after 45 dedicated years at Rochambeau!
Mrs. Ermler's achievements go back to 1972 in Yuma Street (Rochambeau's past location). Barbara has a message for our community

" I first want to thank all the faculty, administration and parents who have supported me through the years... to ALL my students , both recent and REALLY PAST …I am always happy to hear from you and know how you are doing. Feel free to reach me at my e-mail address!"
 " I really had the time of my life!"
HUGHES LE BLANC| 16 ANS À ROCHAMBEAU !
Devoted Swim Teacher and PE Instructor , Mr. Leblanc says goodbye to Rochambeau...

"Après 16 annĂ©es au lycĂ©e, j'ai eu l'opportunitĂ© de former des centaines d'Ă©lèves qui en retour m'ont aussi beaucoup apportĂ© et appris. Ce fut une expĂ©rience inoubliable. Le mĂ©lange des cultures est unique dans notre Ă©cole et la participation en EPS est toujours excellente. Par ailleurs l'Ă©quipe de natation et le YMCA ont Ă©tĂ© sources de grandes satisfactions. Bref je quitte l'Ă©cole avec une certaine Ă©motion mais certain de la voir continuer Ă  se dĂ©velopper." 

MERCI M LEBLANC
Merci à TOUS les profs et les membres de personnel qui ont contribué à l'éducation et la bienveillance des nos élèves Rochambeau !
